Abstract

An in-line coaxial circuit assembly having a first portion with a first electrical connector interface on a first end and a second portion having a second electrical connector interface on a second end. The first portion and the second portion adapted to couple together along an outer wall of at least one of the first portion and the second portion. A cylindrical outer conductor section coaxial with the outer wall may be formed in at least one of the portions. The coupling of the first portion and the second portion forms an enclosed cylindrical PCB chamber between the outer conductor section and inner conductor or outer wall, if present. A PCB may be positioned within the PCB chamber, the PCB coupled to the inner conductor through a slot in the outer conductor section, if present.

Description

BACKGROUND

Electrical circuits such as filters, surge suppression, DC bias injection and or monitoring assemblies of various configurations have been adapted into modular assemblies for easy insertion in-line with coaxial transmission lines. Typically, a housing having a desired coaxial connector interface at either end is formed with a chamber adapted to receive a printed circuit board (PCB) with the required components and interconnecting circuitry. To minimize the opportunity for moisture infiltration, electrical interference and or vibration failure the PCB chamber is fully enclosed and environmentally sealed within the housing.

To minimize the degradation of signals in the transmission line from impedance discontinuities, the assembly typically has a pass through section along a longitudinal axis with center and outer conductor dimensions and spacing similar to those of the expected coaxial transmission line the housing is designed to be used with. Therefore, the PCB chamber has typically been formed as an off-axis extension of the housing in the form of a generally rectangular milled or cast cavity of the surrounding housing. Because the PCB chamber cavity(s) are off-axis, with respect to the pass through section, forming the prior housing requires separate axis specific housing re-mounting steps to complete milling operations during manufacture, significantly increasing the cost of the resulting assembly.

In-line coaxial assemblies with a cylindrical central cavity, formed coaxial with the pass through section have been used to enclose spiral inductor surge suppressor elements that couple the inner conductor to the outer conductor, without a PCB. However, the central cylindrical inner cavity presents a significant impedance discontinuity with respect to the dimensions of the associated coaxial cable and the lack of a PCB prevents the use of more complex electrical circuits.

The increasing competition for in-line RF assemblies has focused attention on cost reductions resulting from increased materials, manufacturing and service efficiencies. Further, reductions in required assembly operations and the total number of discrete parts are desired.

Therefore, it is an object of the invention to provide an apparatus that overcomes deficiencies in the prior art.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

As shown in FIGS. 1–4, a coaxial ring circuit assembly 1 according to an exemplary embodiment of the invention has a printed circuit board (PCB) 3 positioned in a perpendicular (normal) orientation with respect to a longitudinal axis of the assembly 1. The PCB 3 is seated within an enclosed cylindrical PCB chamber 5 surrounding an outer conductor sleeve 7 section.

The assembly 1 is composed of a first portion 9 and a second portion 111 adapted to couple together, for example via thread(s) 13 formed in corresponding overlapping sections of an outer wall 15 of each portion. A sealing gasket such as an o-ring 17 may be applied between the overlapping section(s) to environmentally seal the assembly 1. Alternatively, the first and second portion(s) 9,11 may be adapted for permanent interconnection via a friction fit between the overlapping sections of the outer wall 15.

The outer conductor sleeve 7 section(s) extend generally between a first connection interface 19 of the first portion 9 and a second connection interface 21 of the second portion 11. A diameter along the outer conductor sleeve 7 section(s) may be selected to seat insulator(s) 23 and or minimize an impedance discontinuity that may occur between the assembly 1 and upstream and or downstream coaxial cable that the assembly 1 will be coupled in-line with. The respective outer conductor sleeve 7 section(s) of the first and second portion(s) 9, 11 may be adapted to bottom against each other in secure electrical connection as the thread(s) 13 or other retaining arrangement formed along the outer wall(s) 15 are fully engaged.

The first portion 9 and second portion 11 also each support an inner conductor 25 positioned coaxially within the outer conductor sleeve 7 section by one or more insulator(s) 23. The inner conductor 25 of each portion is adapted to mate together as the first and second portion(s) 9, 11 are coupled, for example via a pin 27 into spring finger 29 configuration. Where direct current isolation is desired, such as DC bias injection for upstream circuits and or surge protection for downstream circuits, a dielectric spacer such as a dielectric sleeve 31 may be installed between the pin 27 and spring finger(s) 29 or other connection between the inner conductor 25 of each portion. The dielectric spacer may be alternatively formed as an air gap, dielectric coating or the like which provides a direct current break in the inner conductor 25 but capacitively couples higher frequencies via a capacitive coupling configurable via the thickness and or dielectric properties of the selected dielectric material. In alternative embodiments, the dielectric spacer or other form of DC break may be omitted and or permanently formed in the inner conductor so that a single inner conductor 25 element extends between the first connection interface 19 and the second connection interface 21.

Electrical connection between the PCB 3 and the inner conductor 25 is via at least one slot 33 formed in the outer conductor sleeve 7 section of the first and or second portion 9, 11. A coupling conductor 35, for example one leg of an inductor, passes from the PCB 3, through the slot 33 and is coupled to the inner conductor 25 for example via a butt solder joint and or insertion into a corresponding hole 35 formed in the inner conductor 25. The PCB 3 may be formed with contact surface(s) 37, for example about connection hole(s) 39, for coupling with the outer conductor and or a grounding connection about the bottom of the PCB chamber 5. To secure the PCB 3 within the PCB 3 chamber, connector(s) such as screw(s) 41 may applied through the connection hole(s) 39. Alternatively and or additionally, the PCB 3 may be coupled with one or more inputs and or output port(s) 43 formed in the first and or second portion(s) 9, 11. The port(s) 43 may be used, for example, to supply a DC bias current to the PCB 3 or as a signal tap output. To avoid interfering with the associated connection interface, the port(s) 43 may be arranged at an angle with respect to the longitudinal axis of the assembly 1.

As shown in FIG. 2, the PCB 3 may be formed in a ring configuration. Alternatively, a portion of a ring such as a U shaped portion may be applied. The maximum dimensions of the PCB 3 are determined by the differential between the selected diameters of the outer conductor sleeve 7 section(s) and the outer wall 15. The PCB chamber 5 is also dimensioned longitudinally to accommodate the expected height of any PCB 3 mounted electrical components such as inductors, capacitors and or metal oxide varistors. In alternative embodiments, a PCB 3 may be applied at both ends of the PCB chamber 5 and or the desired electrical components may be mounted to both sides of a PCB 3.

First and second electrical connection interface(s) 19, 21 at corresponding ends of the first and second portion(s) 9, 11 may be selected from standardized and or proprietary configurations according to the expected interface requirements of the assembly 1. For example, FIGS. 1–4 demonstrate first and second connection interface(s) formed as male and female Type N connectors while FIGS. 5 and 6 show a 7/16 DIN connector interface. Alternatively, any desired connector interface with selected male and or female configuration may be applied, including first and second connection interface(s) 19, 21 adapted to accept raw cable ends.

One skilled in the art will appreciate that the ring shaped PCB chamber 5 and perpendicular (normal) orientation of the PCB 3 therein allows a majority of the first and second portion 9, 11 features to be cast and or machined along a single central turning axis, greatly simplifying the machine tool equipment requirements and number of tool station mounting operations that are required during manufacture. Further, the separate cover, environmental seal and cover retaining hardware found in prior off-axis rectangular PCB chamber configurations has been eliminated.
